EPA says Trump budget would ensure resources needed for TSCA

Read the full story from ChemicalWatch.

Despite the Trump administration’s proposal to massively cut the US EPA’s funding, the agency says the draft federal budget ensures it has the resources to address the safety of new and existing chemicals through implementation of the new TSCA.

This sentiment was expressed in the EPA’s “Budget in Brief” – a document that explains how the agency would make use of the funds allocated to it by the administration’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2018.

Viewing this together with documents leaked by the nonprofit National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA) – which include more details on the programme-level cuts posited by the Trump administration – sheds more light on the changes that could come in the EPA’s work on chemicals.
